CREATIVE PHOTOSHOOTS

Welcome!

We're glad you're here.

There's a moment when it all comes together: your hard work, attention to detail, energy, and technique... along with a cool concept, hair and makeup, styling, props, lighting, and the powerful creative vision we all collectively bring to the shot...

WHO DOESN'T LOVE CREATING MAGIC?!

 It’s a moment we are privileged to experience often in our studio. Where we all get giddy with the massive shift in vibration we feel when we GET THE SHOT... when we can’t stop looking at the image and our dancers can’t believe it’s them on the screen…

It’s difficult but powerful stuff, the process a human goes through to become a dancer.  We know, we went through it ourselves.  We see our dancers, where they’ve been, where they are, and where they are going.  It’s our greatest pleasure to acknowledge, celebrate and validate that journey by joining our creative forces and creating some kick-ass images.

...and, by the way, it’s also so much fun!

Our process is both collaborative and specific.  We love nothing more than to have prepared and conceptualized ideas ahead of time... but then throw it all to the wind if divine inspiration comes through a poignantly shared moment, perhaps piece of fabric or special garment, or even a piece of music during your shoot. This allows us to really flex our creative muscle and collaborate to design imagery with different lighting, colored background builds, props, salt or snow, fabric, dresses, special effects, body painting, and more. The sky's the limit!

Scheduling Your Shoot

While we do shoot on weekends to accommodate travel schedules, we do not recommend it if you live within a 2 hour drive of NYC.

Yes, believe it or not, we encourage dancers to consider choosing a weekday - and yes, that means taking a day out of training and/or school/work.   We get that, and we don’t take that lightly.

A day of rest is hard-won in our society and particularly in the lives of dancers. We feel it’s absolutely necessary for dancers to safeguard their day off for recovery and peak performance during the week.

Now that we are on your team, you will understand just how much we consider your health and well-being of utmost importance. We urge you to be constantly considering where you are investing your time and energy at each step of your career to further yourself along towards your goals.

Photoshoots, done well, are physically and mentally draining.  We are going to use up all of your energy, both cognitively and technically (and then some) in our pursuit of the best possible images for you. This is why you come to us - we know how to pull it all out of you.

Returning to classes without a day off, without time for your muscles (including your brain) to not have rest they need to recover from a week of dancing and then a shoot, will risk your optimal performance next week. At best that’s a few days of mental frustration over not being able to perform at your peak, but at worst, we are risking injury.  We prefer you to not take that risk and treat your day off as if it’s non-negotiable.

There is no stone left unturned here at our studio. We will NOT stop until we get the shot. We do not “capture” moments… we CREATE them! There are no accidents. No serendipity. We fabricate and manufacture every nuanced microscopic detail that goes into these photoshoots while retaining the unadulterated fiery passion you feel when you dance.

No two bodies are the same. Rachel has built, over 15 years of shooting dancers, a proprietary method of photographing and coaching dancers in the photography studio. This method translates movement that works in a studio and on stage into the 2 dimensional format of an image or screen. We start off slowly, incorporating the skills you need to build shots, finding your lines for the camera from the bottom (literally) up. These adjustments needed for the camera often require a new muscle memory than what you're used to in the studio and on stage. We give you the safe space, and the time you need to build in these new body patterns so that you can comfortably let go and allow your energy, power, and poise to shine through. By the time this new way of working and muscle memory is set (usually about halfway through a shoot) the images start "popping" and the creative process becomes so fun and exciting. We combine this method with a sculptural lighting system, designed to show off your strengths and minimize your weaknesses.

It’s not just our goal, but our commitment to the next generation of dancers to make sure you have what you need to boost your mindset, have an inside scoop on who you really are as a dancer, and where your truest natural capabilities land.

WE CAN'T WAIT TO WORK WITH YOU SOON!
